Jay-z calling Beyoncé

Some days I feel like I can totally handle it and then some days I feel like I’m walking on a tightrope and I’m losing my balance. Because you’re human and you have good days and bad days and up days and down days and that’s just kinda how it works. That’s why writing songs helps me get through all that.”

A) None of that shit is cultural appropriation.

B) Petrache Poenaru, a Romanian was given a French patent for invention a fountain pen with a barrel. Yet, the earliest idea of the fountain pen dates back to 973 AD when caliph of the Maghreb, Ma’ad al-Mu’izz, demanded a pen that would not stain his hands and was therefore provided with a pen with an ink reservoir and a nib. x

C) "Hans von Ohain of Germany was the designer of the first operational jet engine, though the credit for the invention of the jet engine went to Great Britain’s Frank Whittle" x

D) Again, none of that shit is “cultural appropriation” 

E) The best part about this is you submitted as “anon” lmfao

F) Don’t insert yourself into a conversation about cultural appropriation when you clearly know nothing about it.

…and then she probably took it off and lived happily ever after. it’s like all these times when Muslim women discuss their experiences with Islamophobia when wearing hijab and barely anyone cares besides other Muslims. But then a white woman says it and everyone’s like “oh yeahh omg so true. this is a real issue”. 

"It reminded me of something that many people know but barely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim"

^^^ Like ok so it took a white girl doing in experiment for “only a few hours” to realize the we Muslim women are actual people? And as if wearing a headscarf doesn’t make you human with feelings any more? You needed to do an experiment to realize that Muslim women are REAL human beings? That’s complete bullshit. I don’t care if this white woman realized something. Just more proof that white people’s opinions are heard and held over other people’s opinions. 

if you’re wondering if this is cultural appropriation, it isn’t because Islam doesn’t say that someone who is not Muslim cannot wear a headscarf It is open to anyone. But don’t call it a hijab; with wearing hijab come responsibilities and way of living that are special to a Muslim woman; not for some experiment that a white person wanted to try out.
